“Most hospitable.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

Made to feel welcome from the start. Upstairs front bedroom with 2 beds and en-suite. Breakfast was excellent especially the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs. Perfect location for the new Robert Burns NTS Museum.

Booked very last minute and made to feel very welcome. We had the downstairs double room which suited us perfectly.
The breakfast had plenty choice and set us up for the day.
Have booked again already
Ignore the rating for the swimming pool - theyt don't have one but I couldn't "unclick"!

A beautiful lovely Bed and breakfast, with such a lovely warm atmosphere. It was a delight to stay and dine in such a positve place, with a short walk away from the beach and with great weather. Many praises must be given to Mr and Mrs Malcolm for beautifully preserving the Bed and Breakfast, such caring people, that were always on hand to ensure you have the best stay possible. Highly recommend a break to Ayr and to the Sunnyside Bed and Breakfast. I will certainly be returning to visit once again.

We enjoyed our stay very much. The house is lovely, and the room we had was very charming and comfortable. The Malcolms were very gracious and helpful with information about the area. Great breakfast!

First visit to Ayr... rather idyllic...beautiful weather for a morning walk on the beach, an unusual combination of seaside and old university town with stone houses. Sunnyside is really quiet, beauifully taken care of, comfortable and clean and Helen was attentive, friendly, helpful. Tea and delicious banana bread on arrival and a bounteous breakfast. Could not have been better. Highly recommended.

Great little bed and breakfast on the outskirts of Ayr. Good recommendation of where to eat in town, very accommodating hosts. I was travelling with two spaniels and it can be difficult to find decent accommodation. This was a well run establishment. The breakfast was lovely - all local and hand reared produce.

We stayed at Sunnyside for a Wedding at the nearby Brigg O Doon Hotel. This B&B was brilliant and the owners where lovely giving us a run to the wedding venue. A fresh pot of coffee was offered on arrival which was lovely and the breakfast in the morning was great!
